Here’s a list of things you might like.

More to the point: it’s a list of things I like.

Things I’ve mentioned or recommended in newsletters over the last two weeks or so.

This one goes out to the ones we love,
you unlucky bastards

you unlucky bastards

Some arguments are allowed
but ultimately
terminology is meaningless. Something
will be learned.
Probably you.

Does it spark joy or indigestion?
I don't really know but I like it

That was fun.
